The sun is powering a new learning tool in Arlington. An educational solar array provided by the city’s wholesale electrical supplier, the Minnesota Municipal Power Agency (MMPA), is now operating as part of energy education programming for Sibley East Public Schools. The array is located at Sibley East Middle/High School.


The five- kilowatt installation is part of MMPA’s Hometown Solar Grant Program – an extension of its Energy Education Program for its 12 member municipalities, including Arlington.
